Within the EU Horizon 2020 NANORESTART research project, new materials and treatment methods based on nanotechnology have been developed and tested. NANORESTART systems may provide several advantages over conventional products, particularly in terms of flexibility (application to different types of substrates), performance, efficiency, retreatability, selectivity and sensitivity of conservation treatments.
Five product families and fifteen key Product Solutions have been selected as cleaning systems for cultural heritage, surface consolidation of fibrous materials, coatings to protect metal and plastics surfaces, and sensing and diagnostic systems for degradation products.
The final conference of the project will be open to the public and it will take place at the National Museum of Denmark, on the 29th and 30th of November 2018.
The final conference has been selected as one of the initiatives to celebrate the European Year of Cultural Heritage.

The Nanorestart final meeting which will be held at the National Museum of Denmark (Copenaghen) on November 2018 has been officially selected as one of the initiatives to celebrate the European Year of Cultural Heritage.
The aim of the European Year of Cultural Heritage is to encourage more people to discover and engage with Europe's cultural heritage, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space. You can find more information about the EYCH and the list of the events taking place all around Europe on the official website.
Paper conservator Antonio Mirabile (AM) and a team of scientists from CSGI in Florence (Project partner and Project leader respectively) spent the last three years researching and developing new strategies to address the issue of pressure sensitive tapes removal from paper artifacts. Some of the outcomes of are now available through some publications and were presented by Antonio Mirabile through a two-day training course held at Tate Britain on 30 April and 1 May 2018. The course was structured to provide theoretical information in the morning, with a practical session in the afternoon. The first day focussed on an overview of PSTs, including their history and development, and their degradation over time.
